Software company Rightcharge has introduced a new service allowing fleets to cover the costs of an employee’s home EV charging by making payments directly to the employee’s energy account.

It is the first function of the new Rightcharge Electric Fuel Card, which is being launched in stages this year, and will subsequently offer access to over 30 public charging networks, plus workplace charging integration.

Drivers can digitally link their home energy account to Rightcharge’s app, allowing rates to be read automatically at any time of day, regardless of whether the employee has a smart meter. The Rightcharge system immediately detects any changes to a driver’s tariff and no manual intervention is required from the driver.

Rightcharge CEO Charlie Cook said: “We’re delighted to launch our home charging payments solution, delivering a seamless and automated way for businesses to manage home EV charging costs. 

“No more confusing expenses or reimbursement hassles. And no out-of-pocket costs for drivers. Just simple, unified payments that shortcut the complexities of fleet electrification. 

“This is the future of EV fleet management and with our public charge card and workplace integrations still to come, we're just getting started. We look forward to supporting businesses and drivers towards a more emission-free future."
